Anyone interested in Forex Trading has much probably seen the name of Alpari at some point, but if you haven't, you will know about it now. Broadly speaking the name Alpari stands to Forex like Ferrari stands to Sports cars.
This is quite exceptional, especially when you consider that in just 20 years Alpari has become with much probability the world's largest forex broker with over 1,5 million customers in 150 countries.
Has it been an easy journey to reach this point? Absolutely not, especially for the fact that Alpari was born in Kazan, Russia in 1998 and to export it's business idea obviously had to cross the borders of it's country to establish the company operations around the world. This has come at a tremendous cost because their succes has always been perceived as someone going to pick the cherries in the garden of other established brokers.
Therefore, we would like to make a statement in Alpari's favour that basically says:

OUR FINAL POINT OF VIEW
Alpari has sufficiently proved itself to be a world class Forex broker with licenses and offices around the world, while the Alpari Research & Analysis Team and the customer support are based in London, United Kingdom.
At the end of 2015 Alpari voluntarily gave back its trading licence to the FCA Financial Conduct Authority in the United Kingdom as it decided to move out of Europe. This kind of choice has been followed by many other brokers, especially since July 2018 when ESMA (European Securities and Markets Authority) restrictions have affected the way brokers can offer their services to retail customers in the E.U. with the main one being the maximum leverage of 1:30 available for experienced traders only.
Well, even if you reside in the European Union, or wherever in the world, due to the legislation of where Alpari is licensed, the company is able to offer you up to 1:1000 leverage if you open an account with them at http://www.alpari.com so to get all the benefits of a long established, trustworthy and well renowed international broker.
Beware though, Alpari is very strict in vetting customers' identity, and therefore you are required to submit true copy of your identity documents and banking/card details.
